Default Fluke rigs

There were a number of things that I didn't like about the fluke rigs that I used last year. So... I'm getting ready to build some of my own, the way I want them set up. In looking at different fluke rigs online for additional ideas, I've noticed glow in the dark components being used in different ways. Cuz N Eddy mentioned to me once that the locally made rigs that he uses also have some glow in the dark components and he swears by them.

How much of a difference would you say this feature really makes? Obviously, if you're fishing in very deep water, there isn't much light down there on the bottom, so a glowing rig is going to get more notice visually. Fluke are opportunistic feeders, usually lying in wait for a passing meal, so it would make sense that a visual aid like this would be beneficial. But their normal table fair doesn't glow, and I know that if someone put a glowing burger in front of me I'd think twice about taking a bite, even if it did smell good.

So what are your thoughts? To Glow or not to Glow? Also, what other things about fluke rigs that you've used in the past have you really liked or disliked? I'd like to put together some real killer rigs and any input you've got would be appreciated. Thanks!!

Here's a photo of my first fluke rig. Both the white skirt material and the blade are glow in the dark. Any comments or tips?

Im not much of a fluke fisherman Jake but I like the offset hooks for flukin. and the traditional hi low rigs.
Last summer on LI we limited out early using ball head jigs with flourescent green the best color, and combo flukebelly/spearing baits.
I watched an elderly gent jigging one morning from the shore with a flourescent lime green ball with a pork rind bring one in almost every cast. Although they were shorts.
Nice work BTW
